The Parade is one of the largest and longest-running Mexican Independence Day Parades in the country. A theme is chosen yearly to reflect the past, present, and future of the Hispanic Community. The Mexican Federations participation along with the community is a huge impact in our Parade, due to their elaborated floats, costumes and live music representing different Mexican states.

For 74 years, nearly 20,000+ people from East Los Angeles and surrounding communities line up along iconic Cesar Chavez Blvd. to watch school bands, equestrian units, folkloric groups, floats, and dignitaries celebrate Mexican Independence Day.
